Fill Me with Thy Spirit

Representative Text

1 Fill me with Thy Spirit, Lord,
Fully save my longing soul;
Through the precious, cleansing blood
Purify and make me whole.

Refrain:
Come, O Spirit, seal me Thine,
Come, Thy fullness now bestow;
Let Thy glory in me shine,
Make me whiter than the snow.

2 Fill me with Thy holy light,
I would have a single eye;
Make me perfect in Thy sight,
’Tis Thy will to sanctify. [Refrain]

3 Fill me with Thy perfect love,
Naught of self would I retain;
Losing all Thy love to prove,
Lord, I count a happy gain. [Refrain]

4 Fill me with Thy mighty pow’r,
Father, Son, and Spirit, come;
In my soul the unction pour,
Make me ever all Thine own. [Refrain]

5 Fill me with Thy presence now,
Lord, Thyself in me reveal;
At Thy feet I humbly bow
To receive the holy seal. [Refrain]
